Scholarship testing will take place on Saturday, 27 October 2018 at the Keysborough, Brighton, Berwick and City campuses. Auditions for Music Scholarships will take place in late October and early November at the Keysborough campus.

Academic and Music Scholarships are tenable until the student has completed Year 12 and cover the School's tuition fee or a fraction thereof. The Haileybury entrance fee, administrative charge and any levies are still payable. Academic and Music Scholarships are awarded during the Annual Scholarship Round in October each year on the basis of a common examination and interview. The examination is conducted by an independent testing agency.  Students applying for a Music Scholarship are also required to audition.

Haileybury scholarships are usually awarded as a 25% to 50% discount on tuition fees.  Limited numbers may be offered above this amount.

Please be advised that the results of the scholarship testing will remain the property of the School and will not be released to families or shared with other schools.

No late applications will be accepted.
